ASMR Universe is a program that is supposed to induce ASMR sensations in your body.
If this review is too long for you, I suggest you to only read the first paragraph about the game's content and the final verdict at the end.

What can you do with this software:
You can choose between a lot of different sounds included in this game. Once you've selected the ones you want, you can modify their speed any volume to fit your needs.

Pros:
  • Sound Library | There are a lot of different sounds you can choose from and there are even different varieties of some sounds (for example, if you want to listen to fire, but you don't like this fire sound, you can choose another one). This is great because different people (obviously) feel better when listening to different sounds, so this enables everyone to find something for himself.
  • Sound Settings | When you set up a few different sound to be played at the same time, you may notice that some of them are too loud for your taste or cover the other ones. This is why you have the ability to change each sound's volume separately and you can change its speed as well. The speed option is actually more useful than you may think since some sounds may relax you more on lower speeds.
  • Preset Saving | You can save your best presets so you don't have to set them all up again next time (although I find that quite enjoyable as well).
  • Trading Cards | Well, it has that. Useful for getting some badges and Steam experience.

Cons:
  • ASMR or Not ASMR? | Well, not all sounds are compatible with the ASMR idea. Screams? No, thanks. Overall, there are actually very few sounds that do bring ASMR feelings, so I guess this program should be described more as an atmosphere creator? Well, that's not really a con, just an observation and a recategorization.
  • Clunky Interface | The GUI could certainly be improved. Right now, it looks kind of clunky, although its usefulness doesn't suffer because of that.
  • Windows Only | ASMR Universe is, sadly, another program that doesn't support SteamOS and MacOS. What a shame.

The final verdict:
Although the ASMR Universe might not be the most appropriate one, it still does a good job at inducing ASMR feelings with some of the sounds and the other ones can just be used to make a pleasant sound atmosphere for your workspace or relaxation purposes. There are plenty of sounds available for using and you can also adapt them for your needs.
Overall, ASMR Universe doesn't do a lot of things, but it's good at what it does, so do give it a shot at some point if you're into ASRM or background sounds.

With love,
